Replika is a three dimensional magazine bringing together artists from all spheres to explore a unified concept. With each issue, artists, writers, musicians and creators of all descriptions are invited to explore a given theme, and to respond with an object-based, serialised work.
Replika Publishing’s second edition Ellipse. “As in a game of telephone, ELLIPSE is about passing information through a fragmented loop resulting in the loss of structure, grammar and sense altogether. Human relationships, in particular familial and marital, are explored through folding and rusting forms, the longing for connection with nature and urban spaces and the search for an art practice equivalent to a close friend’s embrace. The notion of a cyclical history of a precious material becoming commonplace. The female form retraced until almost all trace is lost. Mechanical attempts to counterfeit imagination.”
